Who can apply?

Reaktor.Berlin is a pre-seed startup program supported by the European Social Fund and the Senate of Berlin. The program is open to all founders based and officially registered in Berlin. If you or any members of your founding team have previously received EXIST or the Berlin Startup Scholarships, you or your co-founder(s) cannot attend the program. Moreover, this program cannot be combined with other startup grants such as the „Gründungszuschuss“ of benefits from the Employment Agency (Arbeitsagentur). To be eligible, your startup must not yet be commercially active. It means that your registration at the “Gewerbeamt” (the date of your “Gewerbeschein”) must not be older than 3 months prior to your application. All applicants to the program must work full time on their entrepreneurial project and complete the entire program over its duration (6 months).
